The creative arts respond to the ever-changing conditions of our environment. In a global community where language and customs differ, the service of art is imperative. Artists tell a personal story of human experience. They give awareness to our senses, and bring us views of things we can see, feel, understand and love. They also show us things to which we respond with outrage, activism and solutions.
At GMC, art students are immersed in the interdisciplinary ELA curriculum. This means they gain an understanding of the broader context in which they create their work—they learn how art can interpret and make sense of the ecological challenges facing today’s society.
